Kenneth Allan Phelps, nicknamed "Digger", is a former Major League Baseball designated hitter and first baseman. During an 11-year baseball career, he played from 1980-1990 for six different teams, but he played primarily with the Seattle Mariners. He achieved lasting notice when the pioneering baseball statistician, Bill James made him an emblem for a class of Minor League Baseball players who are unfairly denied a chance to play in the Majors despite compiling Minor League Baseball statistics that would indicate an ability to succeed in the Majors. Phelps eventually played a major role on the 1984 Mariners and went on to enjoy a successful, if brief, career despite not becoming established until age 29.
